American Idiot is great but everything since, I dig it for like a week and get totally sick of it. I didn't even feel like checking out the last two after Uno. I don't think they can make a record again that I'll truly love. Their sound is just very tired at this point. You HAVE to do more than just punk chords. Tre is pretty much the most boring drummer out there right now. Make some memorable bass lines again. I'd love for them to prove me wrong and make something great though. Definitely not rooting against them or anything.

I like what you said about Tre. The first songs I played on the drums were Green Day. That was 15 years ago. As an adept drummer, I can honestly tell you that most of his playing is almost embarrassingly easy. Tre is a good drummer, and he's probably not allowed to get too complex within the constraints of Green Day, but he makes Travis Barker look like a God behind the kit.

Uno, Dos and Tre are easily the worst material that Green Day has ever put out. Even if the band had taken the twelve best songs from all three albums, marketed them hard and released one record, it still wouldn't have been nearly up to the usual Green Day standard. The three record concept just wasn't a good fit for them. Honestly, I'm kind of glad to see the band taking a break - the band really needs to just take a step back and start being missed a little.

EDIT: If I had to pick, Dos was my favorite. Uno was especially mediocre and I remember so little from Tre. By that point, I was just exhausted.

Not accounting for touring activity, but album release-wise, it was 3 years between Nimrod and Warning, another 4 years until American Idiot, then the better part of 5 years until 21st Century Breakdown, then nearly 3 and a half until the trilogy. Basically, since the late 90's, some lengthy downtime between records is pretty par for the course with this band.

I wasn't hugely in to the trilogy, but I didn't hate it as much as others seem to. I'm surprised there not doing anything for the "American Idiot" 10 year anniversary. I hope the break reignites some passion in their writing though!

Uno was pretty mediocre but a fun listen. Tre was quite good IMO. Dos was incredibly embarrassing, catastrophic, whatever adjective you wanna use...

They tend to go about 10 years between their best albums, so the next one will hopefully be better

Ive actually made a 12 track playlist of my favorites from each album. And I agree it probably would have made a better album then each of the three.
Out of curiosity whats the track list to that? :)

Some people don't understand where Jason is coming from, I believe. He knows the band could do better work. You can't argue with that.
